Recorded this cemetery in 2 sections, one in the open and mowed, the other in the woods next to the church.

In the woods section of the cemetery, there were many sunken places which could be graves, with no stones, also a lot of Funeral Home Markers that were not readable.

Because of the layout of the cemetery, it was hard to do it in rows, so just did it as I could.

Will divide this cemetery into 2 sections, the one in the woods, and the one in the open that is mowed.
